A faith-based Camden organization is now working to give ex-cons a warm welcome once they get out of jail.
Camden Churches for Organized People (CCOP) wants to keep those who are free from jail on the right path. So, for them they’re opening what they call “Welcome Centers” once a month at different locations in the city, the first one here at Joe’s Place with Sacred Heart Catholic Church. One of CCOP’s community leaders is Carlos Merced, 34.
